Going mobile with PDA: Palm OS or PocketPc platform ?

P: n/a
I wondered if some people have recent experiences to share and what tools
they chose, to connect with an Access db (either batch update or wireless).
The little application that I have in mind is stock taking for inventory. I
have a very good experience with my old faitful Palm IIIE (not for this
application). But Pocket Pc seems to have caught up and PocketPc just
gives me the impression to be simpler now. Maybe I am wrong. I want the
possibility to have a form, managed by events.

A bit off-topic, but I am also looking for rugged PDA recommendations to
be used in an hostile environment.. TIA.

Try www.ecom-ex.com for a ruggedized PDA.

I've never bought one, but saw it at a trade show and it looked
reasonably impressive.

Good luck
